To Set Up a New Compliance Program

We’ve made setting up a compliance program as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Choose the documents that you need here and add them to your cart (for a new program, this will include all four items).
  2. Go to “your account” to customize your documents online or on your desktop
  3. Keep your program up to date

To customize your Program and Risk Assessment, you can either download Word versions with instructions embedded as comments or use our set-up wizard to customize your documents.  The set-up wizard walks you through a series of questions and generates custom versions for your business.  This takes about 30-45 minutes for both documents.

Once you’ve customized the documents, make sure that you download and save the final versions.  Read through these documents to be certain that they fully describe your business model, risk and processes.  Keep copies of these documents current – remember to review them at least once a year.

If you need to make changes to the documents that you’ve edited online, or if Outlier has released new versions, you will be able to go back to your account page and make changes.

You’ll also need to train your staff.  We’ve created a training package that includes a customizable PowerPoint presentation, a training log, and sample quiz questions that you can use to test your knowledge.

Every two years, you will need to have a Compliance Effectiveness Review.  We provide model documents to you free of charge.  You can also find a guide to deciding who should conduct your review here.

If you’re new to compliance, you may also want to check out our blog article about the first steps for Compliance Officers.

To Train My Staff (Required Annually)

All staff that deal with either customers or customer transactions must receive anti-money laundering (AML) and counter terrorist financing (CTF) training.  We’ve created a training program that includes:

  • A training log to track your progress
  • Sample quiz questions to test your knowledge

You can add the training package to your cart here.  Click on the basket icon anytime to checkout (there is no cost if you’re logged in as a CJA or JVC member, and no credit card information will be collected).  Go to “Your Account” anytime to download the training package.

To customize the package, simply add your company name and edit the slides for your business model.  The Training log can be used to track your progress if you’re not using an automated system.  Finally, the sample quiz questions can be used to test your staff’s knowledge.  There are 21 sample questions.  We recommend using at least 10 questions each year.

An AML Compliance Effectiveness Review (Required Every Two Years)

An AML Compliance Effectiveness Review is a review of your compliance program (your documentation that describes what you do) and your operations (evidence of what you’ve actually done).  The review can be conducted internally (by someone at your company) or by a third party (someone outside of your company).   If you’re not sure what would work best for you, take a look at our blog on AML Compliance Effectiveness Reviews.

If you’re ready to go, but need documents to get started, you can add our review package to your cart here.  Click on the basket icon anytime to checkout (there is no cost if you’re logged in as a CJA or JVC member, and no credit card information will be collected).  Go to “Your Account” anytime to download the review package.  The review package includes:

  • A reviewer guide
  • Working papers
  • A review report template
